Get the Most Out of Your Money When Doing Outdoor Spring Renovations

Apr 06, 2015

Winter is finally over, which means that you can get a start on those exterior home projects that you’ve been itching to perform. Before you begin your outdoor renovations, consider the overall cost of each renovation and what its potential ROI is. Some outdoor renovations may not be worth the time and money. The following are a few exterior maintenance tips for your Kansas City home to get the most money out of your renovations:

  • landscaping tips

    Landscaping – Landscaping can end up costing more than you might think if you’re not careful. For example, individual plants can cost upwards of $15, which adds up if you’re lining your walkway with them. That’s not even mentioning the amount of money you’ll end up paying for soil and mulch. For a fraction of a price, buy seeds instead. Watching seeds grow is more rewarding anyway!

  • Fixing the driveway – The driveway experiences a lot of wear and tear in the winter. However, repaving it can not only cost a lot, it can turn your driveway into a construction zone. This is because you’ll need to dig down to reach the foundation. Instead of repaving, consider adding a new sealcoat.
  • Redoing your deck – If you want a bigger deck, be aware that it will often cost more than you may have thought. It’s not uncommon for contractors to discover structural issues, which can cause the project to grow much more costly. Redoing the deck is basically the same as rebuilding it. This means that you shouldn’t expect an ROI. If you’re going to redo the deck, it’s only for personal enjoyment – if that’s okay, have at it!
